Boro Primorac, Wenger's close ally throughout his management career, is also on the way out as the new era at the North London club continues at a pace.

Aubameyang revealed all the players have congratulated the man in the dressing room and they have collectively written a book to honour the veteran manager. "It is going to be odd without him next season but he has been brilliant and we will forever be thankful", he added.

Goalkeeper David Ospina, who could end up leaving the Gunners this summer anyway, said last week that he and his teammates don't like the uncertainty surrounding Wenger's successor.

"If they don't sack me, I'll stay at Juventus next year too". But this is life.

Sometimes it takes somebody else to tell you something you know deep down, and there was an acknowledgement of that in Sunday's news conference when he said "Maybe it's time.", when referring to his departure. I am happy to be here.

He also said Benedict's resignation "should not be considered an exception, but an institution". Pope Francis has said retired Pope Benedict XVI "opened a door" to future popes by resigning.

Not only did they have the class and panache that has become associated with Wenger's sides, they also boasted steely determination and physicality that's frequently been crucial to succeeding in the English game. It was important to win this game for him.

Wenger now is in France for some business commitments but is due to head back to London Colney later this week to clear his personal effects from the club's training ground.

Arsenal have reportedly made contact with Patrick Vieira over the possibility of their former captain succeeding Arsene Wenger as boss. "You can have guys that can work - but the new manager needs time".

That reciprocation of the relationship at Huddersfield was a touching moment, the Frenchman quipped afterwards: "I should have announced every week that I was retiring, people have been so nice with me since I said that!"
